Colour trends for 2015

Dulux Colour Futures™ from AkzoNobel have come up with the upcoming trends for colour for 2015, through their international research they have selected a range of colours they think will be in trend throughout 2015, and have picked a dominant colour for the year.

Colour palettes and colour trends for 2015

“2015 is about that added refinement: putting the + into the everyday.”

“Everyday + Finding the wonderful in the normal”

Quote from ColourFutures™

As a paint translation of this trend, our research all points to this orangey copper tone. Great on its own, the colour also combines perfectly with pinks, neutrals, whites and other orange hues, as well as metallic colours such as gold.

The theme consists of the following five colour palettes and colour moods:

  • Big nature + small me
  • Layer + layer
  • + unseen spaces
  • Him + her
  • Friendly Barter +

Swatch 50YR 36/263

What is to colour for 2015

The colour of the year 2015 is……. 50YR 36/263 (also known as Copper orange).

“It reflects and complements all of the major trends that we have identified for 2015: a warmth in attitude and a renewed emphasis on sharing; the natural palette of the earth, from clay tones to sunlit highlights of yellow; the skin tones that reflect human interaction and the sepia hues of the past.
It is a colour of depth and currency that combines wonderfully with the everyday”
